    The Best Fall Beauty Trends for 2015

    Autumn.  I love this time of year. It’s around this time that we realize that the year is almost over and we re-evaluate our progress through the year. It is also the time of year that we assess our wardrobes and our beauty routines. We look to our favorite magazines to find out what’s hot this season. Many of the following beauty trends are not new. But there is always a different way to spin many of our beloved looks, especially the looks that walked this season’s runway shows. To find out which beauty trends are hot on the runway this season, keep reading.

    The Red Lip

    This classic beauty staple shows up on many runway shows season after season. Of course, we like to experiment with other colors like the nude lip. We also love those daring colors such as purple and hot pink. But there is something special about the classic look of red lips. Now it’s all about various shades of red—bright, dark, and sultry. There are also the various formulations of creamy or matte. The key difference this season is the full-bodied finish as opposed to tints and glosses.

    Lashes

    The current trend in lashes is not quite what you would think. It’s really about that wide-eyed doll lash look that’s created with a lot of mascara and yes, lashes clumped together. I must say this look may not be for everyone (myself included) but makeup is about self-expression. So if you are digging that look, go for it! If you want lashes that are equally impactful but less clumpy, go for a faux lash. It’s a bit more voluminous and sexy.

    Metallics

    Metallics are one of my favorite beauty trends. From lipsticks, to nail polishes and eye shadows, metallics can add a luxurious vibe to your look. The key is balance. If you want to use metallics, I would suggest choosing one feature to highlight. As opposed to highlighting all features and look like the Tin Man. If you are wearing this trend on your eyes, try a metallic liner. If you choose to do your lid, opt for a matte shadow in the same tone or shade family in the crease to ground the look. If you choose to focus on the lips, use a liner in a complementary shade to give shape and definition to the lips.

    Hair Accessories

    Using hair accessories is a great way to elevate your hairstyle. From barrettes and headbands to scarves and bows, the options are endless. You can also experiment with different textures and finishes such as leather for a chic rocker vibe or crystals which can create a glamorous finish to your look.

    Graphic Eyes

    Go beyond your usual cat eye and experiment with an extra flick of liner to create a double-winged liner. Take it a step further by layering another color on top of your black liner to create and exciting pop on the eyelid. If you are feeling extremely daring, experiment with different shapes or even draw a graphic line in your crease like they did for the runway shows at Suno and Rochas.

    Flushed Cheeks

    Flushed cheeks are a great way to finish off a minimalist makeup look. This season’s looks are unstructured and easy going in hues of rosy and brownish pinks. Cream blushes applied with your fingertips are perfect for getting this fresh, easygoing glow.

    Feathery Brows

    Brows are more feathery and relaxed this season. There’s a focus on grooming and light control which can be achieved with a brow brush and brow gel.

    Nail Art

    Nail Art is one of those beauty trends that I don’t see going away. The look on the runways varied from lines to color blocking and even geometric shapes to adorn the nail.

    Deep Rich Polish

    I absolutely love the deep rich hues of fall including copper, deep gray, blue, plum, and burgundy. These shades give way to a beautiful, sophisticated and daring vibe.

    What’s your favorite beauty trends this season?

     

    A Pop of Color Makes All The Difference

    The Right Pop of Color

     

    From eyeliners to alluring fragrances, these 5 picks will give you the right pop of color:

     

    Pointing Fingers

    Not all gel nail polishes are created the same. So if you are looking for nail polish longevity, one that will get you through the day and still look great in the evening, this polish will do just that. Available in bright beautiful electric shades for the summer, Nails Inc Gel Effect delivers a high shine and ingredients to condition and strengthen the nails. It also has gel effects of plumping and a flawless finish so you can skip that trip to the salon.  Available in 10 shades. $15

     

    Eye Paint

    One stroke across the eyelid with Armani Tint Fluid Eye Color will lock in hours of beautiful wearability. This liquid “shadow” has a unique cooling sensation and a high pigment load that transforms from a liquid to a solid. This turns it into a “shadow” that can be worn alone or used as a base for another eyeshadow. Available in 12 shades inspired by the runway. $38

     

    Pro Tip:  Wipe off the excess product to control the application. Gently dab the applicator on the eye and blend down with your fingertip.  Repeat until the desired level of coverage is achieved.

     

    Line and Define

    With bold pops of color, you can line and define your eyes with no brush needed!  Smashbox Photo Angle Pure Pigment Gel Liner combines 36 hours of waterproof, smudge-proof high impact color in a pen with an angled tip applicator. The gel formula is perfect because it doesn’t flake or peel off. It’s also flexible because you can draw any line from thin to thick. Available in 6 shades. $24.

     

    Pro Tip:  When applying the liner, start from the outside of the eye and work your way toward the inner corner of the eye.

     

    Magic Hour

    The natural light before sunrise or just after sunset casts a golden glow on your face. That look is now available to you at anytime.  Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip and Cheek Color was inspired by the magic hour in Los Angeles. It’s available in shades of soft sheen to high impact blush. Use one or more for a range of looks. The double-ended design has a flat brush on one end and a dome of color on the other end for on the go touch-ups. Available in five shades.  $29.

     

    Pro Tip:  Lightly dab onto the cheekbones (or forehead, nose, etc if you are using the illuminator) and blend down with your fingers.

     

    Scent Impression

    Take a voyage around the world (at least in your mind anyway) with Atelier Cologne Collection Azur. Created with rare extracts from coastal regions and a concentration of pure essential oils, these four fragrances can be worn alone or combined for a unique, enchanting fragrance.  $25-$125

    The Fall Beauty Trends You Need to Know

    There were an abundance of fall beauty trends from the fashion runways this season. This is also the perfect time to re-evaluate and refresh our makeup and skincare routines. There runways were full of models with radiant skin, bright, lined eyes and rich hues on lips and nails. The looks were sultry, exciting, and reminiscent of a past time. These fall beauty trends, paired with the right outfit, will help you to create a timeless and sophisticated fall look.

    Bold Lips

    Deep berries and reds are all the rage this fall. From the runways to the popular magazines and across many social media platforms, this sophisticated yet unapologetic lip always makes a statement. Wear with a natural eye and lots of lashes.  Or pair this lip with a classic cat eye. If you are feeling bold, wear a smoky eye that incorporates berry or burgundy tones.  You can even skip the traditional black liner and line the eyes in hunter green, turquoise or even navy to shake things up a bit.  Before applying your lip, make sure lips have been exfoliated and moisturized.  For a great lipstick which goes on smoothly with long lasting rich pigments and hydration, try Nars Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte ($32).

     

    Chic Nails

    Whether you like your nails long, short, bejeweled or plain, there are plenty of shades and textures that are sure to please. So go ahead, deck your nailsout in metallics, garnets and greens.  For a nail polish that not only looks great but is good for your nails, try Nails Inc. NAILKALE in Bruton Mews ($14) is such a beautiful forest green.  NAILKALE is a revolutionary nail formula which contains kale extract.  Kale is known for its high levels of vitamins A, C, and K. It is great for nourishing your nails.

     

    Draw The Line

    Liners of all shapes, sizes and colors is another one of the fall beauty trends which will continue this season. Let your mood and your outfit determine the way to go when lining your eyes.  Maybe you want just enough liner to make your lashes look fuller. Or perhaps you want to stop traffic with bold graphic liner. Whatever the case, there is a liner just for you. For a liner that creates a multitude of looks, try Hourglass 1.5MM Mechanical Gel Eyeliner in Obsidian which is ultra black ($16-$45).  This thin, soft gel liner gives ease to apply and provides definition like you’ve never known.

     

    Glowing Skin

    What makes your makeup look amazing?  Great skin!  We have all heard the importance of the twice daily skincare routine. But what about that quick fix that will impart radiance to the skin in a flash?  Try a liquid primer that has radiance built in it already. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance does just that ($19.50-$33).  It has a universal pearl tint which creates a soft focus effect. It leaves the skin radiant and prepped for your foundation application.

     

    Metallic Shadows

    Metallic shadows are another one of the must-haves of the fall beauty trends. It is very versatile.  Choose a metallic shadow in a jewel tone (two trends in one) such as Loaded from Urban Decay ($18).

    Makeup Tips: Are You Choosing the Right Foundation?

    Makeup Tips: Why Is Your Face Orange?

    We’ve navigated through those infamous Alphabet Creams (BB’s, CC’s, and  DD’s) and how to choose which is best for you.  This week, we will go a little bit deeper to discuss foundations that you can layer on top of those alphabet creams, or with a traditional primer.
    But before we go there, let’s talk a little about what foundation is and what coverage and finish means.  We will then wrap up next week with formulations and some options to choose from.
    So, what is foundation?  Most people know what it does. According to Wikipedia, foundation is a skin-colored cosmetic applied to the face to create an even, uniform color to the complexion, to cover flaws and, sometimes, to change the natural skin tone.  There are many forms of foundations including powders and liquid, which are most common, as well as tinted moisturizers, cream to powders, stick foundations and soufflés.  All of these formulations have various finishes and coverages that deliver a range effects.  What does finish and coverage have to do with selecting and wearing a foundation? Everything! It will determine the final outcome of what your makeup looks like.

    Makeup Tips: Foundation — What’s It All About?

    Two very important aspects of your foundation are finish and coverage. Here are some pointers to better understand why these two characteristics of foundations are relevant.

    Finish: Refers to how the product looks on the skin.  There are 3 basic finishes – matte, natural, and satin.

    1. Matte: Leaves a soft, no shine finish.  This finish is best for those who have oily, combination skin. With the right skin prep, it can possibly be worn by just about anyone.  Matte finishes usually lasts the longest and can be great for long days or evenings.  When using a matte finish (which usually has more of a medium to full coverage), it is important to use blush to contour and create dimension because the face can tend to look flat after the application.
    2. Natural/Satin: Leaves a finish which usually mimics your natural skin.  Your skin will look more flawless; neither dewy or matte.  If you are more oily, make sure you to use an oil-free moisturizer and oil-free primer. Then set with a powder on the areas where you tend to get a little shiny.
    3. Dewy/Luminous: Gives a luminous, glowing complexion and usually has sheer to medium coverage.  This finish is great for those who have more dry and/or more mature skin.  A dewy, luminous finish foundation can get tricky for those who have more oily skin as this formulation can cause product to slide around. So use a lightweight powder to set the foundation.

     

    Coverage: Refers to the level of transparency (or opacity) of the foundation. There are three basic coverages – sheer, medium, and full.

    1. Sheer: Leaves a thin, see-through veil of color on the skin.  It gives a little polish to the skin.  However, various skin conditions such as acne scarring or redness will still be visible with sheer coverage foundation.  This level of coverage is best for those with clearer skin.
    2. Medium: Gives enough coverage to conceal minor imperfections such as redness and minor discoloration.
    3. Full: Will conceal major discoloration.  This level of coverage is not reserved for those who have skin concerns. Selecting a full coverage foundation (or any other level of coverage or finish for that matter) is all about personal preference.

    Next time, we will finish up with a bit about formulation and the best options for foundation.

    Your Beauty Routine: How to Look Like You’ve Had A Good Night’s Rest

    You know the drill. Perhaps you were out a bit late socializing or  indulging in a few extra cocktails.  Or, maybe you were up super late, burning the proverbial midnight oil in order to put the finishing touches on that major term paper.  In the midst of it all, not only did you not get enough beauty rest, you also skipped a few important steps in your nightly beauty routine.  Now it’s morning and you have to drag yourself out of bed to face the world. You look rather, let’s just say, worn.  You have only a few minutes to get ready. No time for your regular beauty routine. You need to look like you’ve had a good night’s sleep.  But before you leave the house to grab your double shot of espresso, follow these tips to help you Fake Awake.

     

    • Start with Visine to help get the red out of those tired bloodshot eyes.
    • Follow with a good eye cream such as Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Anti-Wrinkle Eye and Lip Cream. Eye cream should be a part of your regular beauty routine.  This lightweight gel-cream is packed with powerful antioxidants and Vitamin C which will help firm, brighten, and hydrate the eye area.
    • Fill in your brows with a good brow pencil like Anastasia Brow Wiz.  This tiny wiz has the tiniest point which allows you to make tiny strokes that mimic brow hairs.  Filling in your brows will help give shape and lift to the face; especially important when you need to look awake.
    • Apply a foundation primer that brightens/illuminates like Givenchy Mister Smooth Primer to help smooth out skin texture and boost luminosity, as well as hydrate.  Layer your tinted moisturizer/foundation on top for smooth flawless skin.
    • Use an under-eye concealer a little lighter than your complexion. Please, not in a reverse raccoon sort of way.  Smashbox’s Camera Ready BB Cream Eyes Broad Spectrum SPF 15  is lightweight and has the coverage of a concealer. It also hydrates, illuminates, and has an SPF in it.  Dispense a small amount to apply to the inner and outer corner of the eye, above and below the brow, and in a V-shape under the eye. Blend with an airbrush concealer brush (Sephora Collection Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush #57 is a top pick).
    • Use a lash curler and mascara (Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara) which gives volume (and length).  Pay extra attention to the outer lashes to curl them to give the eyes lift.  Skip liner and mascara on the bottom lashes if you are naturally dark under the eyes.  You can also use a pair of lashes to give more fringe to the eye or do a cat eye/winged liner which will also give lift to the eye.
    Now you are ready to face the world. Add these tips to your regular beauty routine and you will look refreshed even when you are not. Check out other beauty tips in our Beauty Section.

    To address concerns and maintain the look of your skin, you should have a regular skin care routine which includes daily cleansing, toning, and moisturizing.  Occasionally your skincare routine may not be enough however.  Many factors affect skin – pollution, poor diet and lack of sleep, hormones.

These skincare products include treatments which boast innovative formulations and ingredients designed to get your skin of the right track.

    Fresh Soy Face Exfoliant 
    If your skin is rough and flaky or your foundation tends to catch on your face or not even stay in place, try an exfoliator like, Fresh Soy Face Exfoliant.  Formulated to be gentle yet effective, this exfoliator is a natural form of microdermabrasion and will slough off dry, flaky skin.  It contains rose hips and vitamin e (to hydrate) and cucumber to sooth as well soy, which is rich in amino acids known to brighten and help with cell turnover.

    Summer Bridal Beauty Tips

    summer weddings, bridal beauty, wedding makeup,
    Wedding season is here and nothing is more beautiful than a summer Bride.  From the less traditional but increasingly popular route of the destination wedding or beautiful backyard gazebo weddings to the more traditional ceremonies held in houses of worship, brides are expressing their personal style when it comes to their special day.

     

    Many brides are also taking matters into their own hands when it comes to styling their own weddings.  From hand-crafted invitations,  to designing their own veils, to overseeing the beauty and makeup for their bridal look, modern brides are taking a hands-on approach to their entire day. Brides are ensuring that their bridal beauty game is on point. If that is you, the following tips will help you to ensure that your look is glowing and flawless.

     

    1.  Start with a good skincare routine. It should include cleansing, toning, moisturizing and an eye cream based on your skin type (dry, combination, oily).  These steps will ensure that your skin is soft, smooth and free from irritants which can lead to breakouts.

     

    2.  To keep your bridal beauty camera-ready, skip the additional sunscreen as well as products that contain sunscreen for that day.  SPF tends to “flash up” when photographed. This leads to that washed out or ghostly appearance.  So to avoid that white cast in your bridal photographs, it is best to skip it for this one day.  You may also want to bypass products that deliver excess amounts of shimmer on the eyes and face, as it can sometimes look harsh and unflattering as well.

     

    3.  Even if you don’t normally wear foundation, on your wedding day, it is important to invest in a  good primer and foundation to give a flawless yet lightweight finish.  MakeUp Forever and Smashbox foundations and primers  are great choices to help you achieve the complexion look you are going for.

     

    4.  Choose a blush that is soft and can be used to sculpt and define, as well.  Some great choices are Makeup Forever HD Blush, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush.  Again, to ensure that your blush delivers the best look to enhance your bridal beauty, avoid formulations that are too shimmery and sparkly.

     

    5.  Use an eyeshadow primer such as Urban Decay Primer Potion or Too Faced Shadow Insurance to smooth out texture on the eyelid, increase the wear of your eyeshadow and to intensify the color.

     

    6.  When choosing eyeshadows, choose colors that complement your wedding colors, skin and hair tone. Take into consideration the time of day and the venue of the wedding (i.e. morning vs. evening wedding, beach wedding vs. indoor wedding).  Great eyeshadow options which have excellent color pay-off and staying power include Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, Marc Jacobs and Urban Decay.  Be sure to layer on a waterproof liner and mascara as well.

     

    7.  To ensure that your lipstick stays put throughout your special day, start with a lip liner. It gives shape to the lip.  Follow it u with a lip stain such as  Tarte Lipsurgence or YSL lipstain as a base.  Finish off with a long wear lipstick for added color and intensity.  Great long wear lipstick options include MakeUp Forever Aqua Rouge Lipstick and Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Color.

     

    As a final touch, finish your look with a makeup setting spray from MakeUp Forever Mist & Fix.  This spray creates a sweat proof, rub proof barrier to lock your look in for hours as well as hydrate the skin and leave a beautiful, luminous finish. Use these tips to get the ensure that you are a true bridal beauty on your wedding day.
